Dead Space 3 Kinect Will Reward You For Cursing at Your TV
You’ll be able to play Dead Space 3 over the Internet with Kinect on Xbox 360, which means you’ll be able to berate your co-op partner in a completely new way than you normally would through your Xbox Live headset.
But you’ll also be able to curse at your TV with Kinect listening in, and that could trigger special rewards through your gameplay, according to Executive Producer Steve Papoutis.
Speaking with CVG, Papoutis said that Kinect will be paying attention to what you say, and certain curse words, said at the right moments, might trigger specific in-game actions. He was vague about it, though: “…there are commands where you might be in a certain situation and you might yell a specific expletive and it might behave in a way that you want it to,” he said.
So who knows what that means, exactly, because I’m not really sure how “Holy f–king s–t!” is going to translate into Isaac or John Carver actually doing anything, except maybe crapping their spacesuits in terror. Although that could be pretty funny.
Guess we’ll find out for certain come Dead Space 3′s launch on Feb. 5.
